I was surprised when I saw the latest issue of More Magazine. It had a full article dedicated to brooches. They have been a popular staple of vintage fashion lovers in recent years. Now classic brooches are the must-have accessory for this fall.
Here is a quick guide for how to select your brooch.
1. Geometric - Simple yet bold geometric retro shapes are popular not only as lapel pins, but also as a focal point for the waistline on dress or skirt.
2. Military-Inspired - We have to salute these gold and brass beauties. I love the tip from this More Magazine article, "We like them best when clustered in a group for maximum impact (on a shoulder or collar)..."
3. Victorian - Think the Crown Jewels of Britain with fine filigree and sparkling rhinestones. They are the perfect complement to a little black dress.
4. Nature - From fun to feminine, brooches inspired by flowers, birds, and other woodland creatures are always a classic.
